    In Conversational Capacity, Craig Weber presents a suite of clear and practical tools together with insightful experiences for building engaging dialogue in often challenging circumstances within organisations.  In essence, this book provides us with a roadmap to engendering authentic leadership within the workplace. Our mental models are constructively challenged and awareness of automatic inferences heightened, stimulating improved adaptivity and innovation. Seemingly devoid of cultural assumptions, I've seen these tools put to great effect in an Australian context. Conversational Capacity is a must read for leaders, human resource professionals and any individual striving to make a difference in their workplace or personally.

    If you want your organization and relationships to be healthier

    If you want your organization and relationships to be healthier and more productive, this book is more than useful…it is an essential read.  Craig outlines an inspiring vision for building work relationships, teams, and organizations that are more resilient, healthy, agile, and effective. The book is clear, compelling, and cleverly writtgne.  Unlike many books in the “improve your organization” space, he provides more than a clear vision for a new kind of organization; he also gives you the practical tools for making it a reality.

    Excellent book – it DOES matter how you deliver the message!

    Craig Weber lays out a succinct and practical model for thinking about the way we communicate, why we often miss the mark, and how to get better. Not a quick fix, but rather a set of principles and tools for making sure that we make truly informed decisions, based around conversations that engage our audi, and ensure that we both understand and are understood. Craig Weber has a whimsical style of writing, using examples we can all relate enceto. If you are a leader, or aspire to be one, this is a must read!

    Management books don¿t tend to hold my attention to the very end

    Management books don’t tend to hold my attention to the very end but this one was very different. This book is amazing - I didn’t want to put it down.

    It is an easy read and very relatable to both organisational and personal relationships. Craig Weber provides easy to understand principles that challenge you to think about your daily interactions and the impact they have on those around you and in particular organisational performance. The step by step approach makes it easy to apply the principles and I am already seeing positive changes…it works! I am currently talking to my HR department to see if the principles in this book can be integrated into our leadership program.

    It is so exciting to see something different for a change. I have been looking for a book like this for a long time and cannot recommend this book enough for business and HR leaders or employees. Look forward to seeing more from this author.

    Being a Leadership Development consultant, I have read many a business / leadership book and this is by far one of the best books that I have read in a long time. I simply cannot recommend it highly enough for anyone who aspires to be a leader, is currently a leader, or just someone who wants to make a positive change to their work, and even home environment.

    The beauty of this book is that it focuses on what happens when the heat is on – i.e. when we habitually go to our default position. As a leader it is too easy to ‘talk the talk’ of leadership models, mantras, and latest fads – but it is what you do when the heat is on that defines you as a true leader or not.

    In Conversational Capacity you will not only learn from true stories that are easily relatable, you will also pick up some serious “conversational martial art” tools that are guaranteed to transform how you, and your team, operates when the heat is on.
